DirecTV hints and tips

Although DirecTV offers a wide range of channels, the service itself can be expensive. Below are a few pointers for saving money with your DirecTV subscription. 

  • Watch out for DirectTV sales: Like many companies, DirecTV runs sales on its packages throughout the year. Deals can range from freebies like a $300 Visa rewards card when you sign up or dollar-off discounts on your annual membership. 
  • Switch from a competing service: DirecTV occasionally offers rewards to customers who switch from competing services, such as Dish. Rewards can vary from $10/month off your first year or a rewards card/voucher that you can use upon signing up to eligible DirecTV plans.  
  • Auto-pay to lock in savings: One of the best ways to save on your DirectTV membership is by opting for auto-pay while signing up. This will lock in lower rates for the year. 
  • Bundle AT&T with DirecTV: AT&T customers who bundle their AT&T plan with DirecTV can save on select packages. Note: these deals are only offered in select areas. You can see what's available in your area via the DirecTV website (opens in new tab).

Whereas DirecTV is a satellite service, DirecTV Stream is a streaming service that only requires an internet connection. It essentially combines live local and national TV, a massive on-demand library, and streaming video into a single service. DirecTV Stream offers four packages with prices ranging from $69.99/month to $149.99/month. All four packages have unlimited cloud DVR and unlimited simultaneous streams within your home (three streams on the go). In our DirecTV Stream review, we said the service doesn't stand out in any way — unless you watch a lot of regional sports and consider that a serious priority.
